I am using Nero Express Ver. 22.214.171.124.
When I returned from Italy, I used the above software to burn pictures onto a VCD, that I thought would play in my DVD player. Bottom line: sometimes the images play one after the other, and sometimes the images don’t play period. I don’t have the nice menu on the burned CD that I can control with the remote from my DVD player to step through the pictures on the CD, although I believe that this might be a function of the software itself, in terms of limitations from its being only Nero Express.
What I had originally thought that I might do is pull the picture images off the CD that I burned with Nero Express, put them on my hard drive, download the full (demo) version of Nero Ver. 6, and reattempt burning the CD again. What seems to be standing in the way at the moment is that all of the picture images on the burned CD in the SEGMENT directory are ‘.DAT’ files, and they are defaulted to OPEN (of all things) with MS Word. I believe that they should have burned onto the CD as MPEG or JPG files (please forgive me here if I am using the wrong degination for the picture files; no one knows less about this stuff than me!), or some other “picture-ish” type of file.
So that, in a nutshell, is the mess that I am in. Does anyone have any ideas that can help me out here? I would be deeply appreciative.
